This modern home with a view features a sleek pool built into a clean-lined wood deck with interesting angles. A wire rail system surrounds the elevated deck, offering safety without obstructing the view.
The flat projection aluminum awning over this balcony makes the space feel like an additional room. A metallic coffee table is positioned between two gray barrel chairs and a reclaimed wooden bench, while a metal wire railing encloses the space.
A metal railing with wire cables runs directly behind the table, with a matte black finish that complements the vaulted ceilings and window treatments. In turn, the living room and dining area look totally cohesive.
This outdoor courtyard area features a wooden picnic table with bench seating and sliding glass doors that lead to the interior spaces. A second floor balcony with a wire mesh and wooden railing provides an overhead view of the space.
This modern stairway is a true work of art. Wire-brushed oak floors and stairs are set against the glass railings. Recessed lighting highlights the details of this space, including the contemporary artwork.
This pristine pair of swivel chairs was passed down from Micah’s grandmother. They’re a perfect way to inject a little generational history into a young family’s home. Family heirlooms are always a good idea. You’ll notice that below the white painted crown molding is a white picture rail. In many older homes, the walls are plaster as opposed to drywall. Plaster is much harder and more difficult to repair; therefore, a piece of molding/rail is used as a surface to attach hardware and wire, and then your artwork to. Preservation is key in caring for older homes. The Stansells cleverly repeated the teal color on the drapery panels, but used white sheers on the window’s interior for semi-privacy while still allowing light in.
